Y1/2: Mrs Palmer's Class 2017 - 2018

Mrs Palmer

Welcome to the Autumn Term

Welcome to Ms Palmer’s class page! This page is where to go to find out what we have been learning about, any exciting activities we have participated in and any other information you might need.

What’s happening this term

Children entering Year 1 will be given lots of opportunities to make the transition from Reception as smooth as possible. The mornings will be filled with Phonics, Literacy and Maths and the afternoons will have a balance between learning through play and our foundation subject lessons. Our Topic this term is Space and we will be visiting Jodrell Bank in October to enhance our learning. It will be amazing and I’m excited that the children will get a chance to experience this fantastic day out.

Class rules 

We will be working on these rules the first week back as it is important that the children have an input into creating a harmonious working environment for all. They will tie in very strongly with our school rules and link with showing mutual respect, compassion and wearing our badges with pride.





Homework will be given out on a Thursday to be returned on a Monday.

All children will receive spellings each week to learn and will be tested on them each Monday morning. Not all children will have the same spellings as they will be linked to their current phonics stage.

Maths homework will also be given out weekly which will help to consolidate the area they are currently working on.


Reading is essential to your child being able to access the curriculum and the best thing you can do to support them is to read as often as possible with them. This could be anything from 5-10 minutes or as long as your child is engaged and wants to read. Find a quiet time when possible and make it a special time where they have your full attention.  We understand that with out of school activities it is not always possible to read every night but we would encourage you to do it as often as possible as this is what will help your child to progress quicker. Please sign your child’s diary every time they read at home and feel free to write any notes or use the diary to ask us anything about their reading. The children will earn certificates for the number of times they read at home starting with white award for 15 times and going up to Diamond for 150 times.

Reading books can be changed by your child every day. This is done after register in the afternoon. We will ask the children who need to do a book change and the onus is on them to then go and change their book in order to build up their independence. I if your child forgets to do this, come with them to let us know at the end of the day and we can remind them of the correct time to swap books and also let them go and choose a new one,

The expectation when it is your child’s day to read is that they bring us their reading record to be signed as their group is called to read.


This half term the children are privileged to be able to be taught PE by specialists in their areas. They will participate in indoor Gymnastics on a Monday afternoon and Rugby on the Astro turf on a Thursday afternoon.

The children will wear their PE kit on both occasions. They will be barefoot for Gymnastics and as they will be outside for Rugby you may wish to send in trainers and something to cover their legs.

Class News

Our Class Walt is called Ian the penguin and the star of the week will be allowed to take him home for the weekend to spend time and have adventures with him. They have a book that will come with them where they can share their experience.
